Before you watch the following video, let me set it up for you. There’s a guy called Bart Sibrel who likes to question the authenticity of the trips to the moon. He spews some nonsense about radiation and God’s will and such. If there were him and a dead loon on the road, I’d assume that the loon was on his way to a gig while Sibrel was on his way to harass Buzz Aldrin. Because that’s where this video takes us. It takes us to the last few moments when Buzz Aldrin walks out of the hotel where Sibrel lured him for a fake interview. Sibrel (or his people) told Buzz that they were filming a children’s science show, so Buzz showed up. Instead of a children’s show, he was cornered by Sibrel and… Well, watch the video:
God, that was a satisfying punch!
Sometimes enough is enough. Buzz was trying to get away from this jerk and not give him the pleasure of an “interview” or even a statement, but the jerk kept calling Buzz names. I’m not normally one to respond with violence, but I cannot fault Buzz at all for punching this guy. Enough is enough. You can only allow lies and insults so much before you need to stop it. Some of us respond with insolent, albeit reasonable, blog posts. But I guess Buzz is not much of a blogger. And there is nothing wrong with that.
